Classes for our First Holy Communion preparation program at St. Bernard's are due to start in September 2023. Classes are Sundays, 10:00 h in the St. Bernard's community center classroom. Parents who wish to enroll their children (age 8+ ) in our preparation program are asked to please contact the ESM Office via email at email@example.com. If your child is baptized, please attach a PDF scan of the baptismal certificate. If your child is not yet baptized, please indicate this in your email. The office will collect your name and details and provide you with the necessary registration form.
The communal celebration of Holy Mass with their peers and families is a key component of a young child's formation in the Catholic faith. Therefore, there is an expectation for families to attend Sunday Mass in the English-speaking Mission during the time of preparation (directly following the 10 am class). Families who are unable to commit to this are asked to defer enrollment until they can do so.
